Abstract
ELECTROMAGNETIC GUNS, IN COMMON WITH MANY OTHER DOD APPLICATIONS,ARE IN NEED OF METHODS FOR TRANSFERRING ENERGY FROM AN INDUCTIE ENERGY RESERVIOR TO AN INDUCTIVE LOAD, I.E., THE ELECTROMAGNETIC GUN. SUCH A DEVICE NAMED THE "MEAT GRINDER" (PATENT APPLIED FOR) HAS BEEN CONCEIVED, ANALYZED, AND SUBJECTED TO A FUNDAMENTAL PROBE OF PRINCIPLE EXPERINMENT. THE DEVICE IS CLASSIFIED AS A GENERIC CIRCUIT FOR REVERSIBLE ENERGY TRANSFER BETWEEN INDUCTORS AND AND WAS IDENTIFIED BY THE LAST EM GUN CONFERENCE REVIEW COMMITTEE AS THE MOST INNOVATIVE CONCEPT PRESENTED (SEE ENCLOSURE). BY PROVIDING FOR PROVIDING FOR REVERSIBILITY, THE"MEAT GRINDER" ALLOWS US TO BENEFIT FROM THE COMPACTNESS AND LOW COST OF INDUCTIVE STORAGE WITHOUT THE INEFFICIENCY AND SWITHCH PROBLEM NORMALLY ENCOUNTERED. THE DEVICE UTILIZES A FLUX AND ENERGY INVARIANT TURN-WIPING SCHEME, WHICH DOES IN EFFECT SPREAD THE SWITCHING ACTION IN TIME, THEREBY PROVIDING FOR CONTINUITY, AND THUS REVERSIBILITY, THROUGHOUT THE ENERGY TRANSFER PROCESS.
